Newcastleton Overview

Close to Scotland/England border Newcastleton serves up a brilliant Blue Route and a riotous Red Route.

Village based trailhead with great facilities and bike hire close by. The best kept secret of the 7stanes?

The Trails

The Skills Area features blue and red-graded loops  and is a great wee blast whatever you're riding.

Blue Route

A fun introduction to real mountain biking.

The Red Route

Fast and flowy narrow singletrack goodness with an 'out there' feel.
